Contents: Verso I-II: journal of the period from the last day of [IV] Smw until I Ax.t 20 (rest lost) of regnal year 13, recording deliveries of vegetables, inactivity of the gang, the absence of "foreigners" (xAs.t.y.w ) or "Libyans" (Rb ), visits by the vizier in connection with the lack of grain rations. Assistants of the vizier come to collect a bed and a letter for the vizier (verso I 12-15). Other matters obscure due to fragmentary state of the papyrus. Verso III: fragmentary text of year 14 recording i.a. deliveries, the arrival of a letter, and numbers of men working and absent.

Remarks: Description: sheet joins as observed by B. Haring in Turin, April 1995. Botti and Peet ( Il giornale della necropoli di Tebe , 9, 15, 16, 28, 29) distinguish two scribes who wrote the Necropolis Journal of years 13 and 17: hand A ("mano A") wrote Giornale 13, 17-A recto, 17-A verso I, 17-B recto I, II, VII and VIII and 17-B verso ; hand B ("mano B") wrote Giornale 17-A verso II-VI and 17-B recto III-VI as well as lines a-b over 17-B recto VII-VIII. Dates mentioned: Helck, Die datierten und datierbaren Ostraka , 506 reconstructed the data I Ax.t sw 25-28 in verso III 9, 13, 14 and 15. Terminology: anx n Imn (verso II 15) very doubtful; Botti-Peet, Il giornale della necropoli di Tebe , 13: "giuramento ad Ammone".
